Hello and thank you for using Just Answer.
Non-qualified also means that you can't rollover to an traditional IRA to keep the tax deferred status. There will be no penalty although the distribution will be taxed to you as ordinary income. Since you will have already paid tax on the distribution, your best bet would probably be to contribute to a Roth IRA in the year you still have wages. The only requirement or eligibility rule for contributing to a Roth IRA is that you have been paid some kind of compensation. This can be in the form of wages, salaries, tips, professional fees, and even bonuses.If your modified adjusted gross income exceeds these limits, then you are no longer eligible to contribute to a Roth IRA. You cannot contribute more than $5000 but at least it gives you an option.I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX information is helpful to you,
Your filing status defines the amount you can make and be able to contribute anything.
